Hat-trick of awards for Jill

Hat-trick of awards for Jill

Jill has won all our CSBS awards for excellence in the one year!

We make annual awards for the highest exam results. The Vicki Paterson Junior Shield for Excellence is for the highest result in Primary to Grade 3; the Senior shield is for Grade 4-8 and vocational grades; and the Katie Deacon Award for Performance is for the highest mark in a solo performance exam. In an outstanding and remarkable achievement, Jill Russell (12) has successfully gained EVERY award for exams taken in 2020!

Jill was presented with the Vicki Paterson Junior shield for her score of 92% in her Grade 3 ballet exam which was postponed due to the Covid pandemic and completed by video assessment. She also gained 88% for her first vocational exam, Intermediate Foundation, in March 2020 which secured her the Vicki Paterson senior shield. Finally, she retains the Katie Deacon Award for gaining 96% for her Grade 2 solo performance award!  She has previously won our acro award for most promising dancer, but there were no acro exams held in 2020 due to Covid restrictions.

Jill studies ballet, jazz, tap, acrobatics and musical theatre, and is a member of our Majors ballet programme. She has previously won awards at the Royal Academy of Dance Awards Day (Scotland), as well as our Millennium Trophy for best overall in our annual Choreography Competition. She danced the lead role of Clara in our Nutcracker ballet and has also danced in a pas de trois in "Swan Lake" with the Russian State ballet. Prior to the first lockdown she successfully auditioned for the Easter course with the Royal Ballet School.

Well done Jill - we look forward to seeing what you achieve in 2021!
